Summary A lab-based electrolytic-cell is designed to analyze the effect of external magnetic field on bubble evolution underneath an anode surface. Buckingham Pi theorem is used to provide a complete list of dimensionless parameters for a typical cell configuration. There is an increase in bubble size and the number of bubbles with time. The hydrodynamic convection is apparent due to the effect of electrolyte flow caused by swarm of bubbles rising along the anode surface. The image sequence shows that swarm of bubbles exhibit a swirling flow-field in the presence of the magnetic field. The coalescence process intensifies in an area where magnetic field is higher. As a consequence, bubbles are swept away by the magneto-hydrodynamic (MHD) convection. These results suggest that a magnetic field causes remarkable improvement on the surface coverage of the anode.
